Audio/visual unsynchronised 

At the 59 minute mark, before Nick starts to talk about his father-in-law, George says: "Okay, don't", but the actor's (Richard Burton's) lips don't move.

Continuity 

When George and Nick are outside talking under the large tree, George pours a small amount of bourbon into Nick's glass. A second later, we see the glass has much more bourbon in it than was originally poured.

When revealing the secret of his wife's money near the rope swing, George refills Nick's drink nearly full and it instantly becomes almost empty as Nick takes the glass back.

The first scene of George and Martha entering the living room shows a 3 light floor lamp in the corner of the room. The next scene of the area shows a single globe lamp hanging from the wall. The single globe lamp remains through out the film.

When George goes to pour his and Martha's first drink, there is a copy of Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse on the bookshelf above the bottles. It is missing in subsequent scenes.

In the bedroom scene near the beginning, when Burton lies on the bed, the books behind his head are fully visible, but when Taylor lies down next to him a minute later, the books are half-obscured by the pillows.

At one point, Nick is sitting on the couch. George sits next to him and puts his arm around Nick's left shoulder. The camera angle changes and George's hand has changed its position.

Errors in geography 

The four characters stop at a bar after the first soiree at George's house. It is clearly after 2:00 a.m., since the time was stated during the first segment. No bars, however, would have been open after 1 or 2 a.m. in the New England states, where the film is set.

Miscellaneous 

While driving Nick and Honey home, before they stop at the roadhouse, the transmission selector (the lever on the steering column) changes position several times between shots.

Revealing mistakes 

As George and Nick are coming back into the house from their scene in the garden, Nick's shadow on the porch is seen to suddenly disappear just before George enters the shot.

In almost every scene, to go up the stairs there are four or five steps and then the staircase turns left before continuing. Late in the movie, when Sandy Dennis enters through the front door, the staircase is straight with no turns. Further, if there were separate staircases, they almost certainly would not both go up from the front of the house.

The threads suspending the "moths" flitting around George and Martha's porch lamp are visible.
